The First Annual Denver Language School Night Market is being held to promote and build community among our two campuses, families and students, promote DLS as the leading language immersion program in our city, and raise funds to support and grow the DLS teaching initiatives.
The Night Market will be a unique blend of our Hispanic and Asian heritages into a night festival that highlights the best of both worlds. Our cultures will be celebrated with goods being sold by many local vendors, food trucks, extraordinary dance and musical performances and carnival booths planned and run by our amazing students. This will be a time of fun and celebration for all.
The event is open to the public and FREE - there is no charge for entry. As mentioned, goods and various foods will be available for purchase and tickets for carnival booths can be purchased for a small charge. The food trucks and vendors will donate 10% of their proceeds to the DLS PTA, as well as all funds raised from the carnival booths and silent auction items.
Please invite your neighbors, extended family, and friends. Feel free to share the event details below - you can also do so through this Facebook event:
